“Yellow Vests” Protesters Gather in Brussels

Sputnik – 08.12.2018

According to a Sputnik correspondent, Brussels police had blocked the passage to certain busy streets in order to prevent groups of protesters from entering. Special units of the Brussels police are traveling across the city in trucks, while police are also patting down all suspicious individuals coming from the city’s train stations.

Brussels police on Saturday faced off against about 100 “Yellow Vests” protesters on Rue de la Loi, denying them access to the European Quarter, where the demonstrators intended to hold an unauthorised rally.

“Around 100 people have already been detained,” Brussels police spokeswoman Ilse Van De Keere said.

Law enforcement officers had already detained about 70 people earlier on suspicion that they intended to join protesters in various areas of the capital, Ilse Van De Keere told reporters.

On Saturday, Belgian police prepared a thousand special forces officers to combat riots in Brussels. As Ilse Van de Keere emphasised, police had “tried to contact the organisers of the protest rallies scheduled for Saturday to warn about unauthorised gatherings of people, but could not do this because they did not find anyone responsible for organising the protest”.

Many trains this Saturday did not stop at Brussels Central Station; Parc metro station is closed in the centre of the city near government offices. The rest of the city’s subway system is still functioning normally.

  1. Since I don’t believe anything brought to me regarding France, MSM, or “protesters”, I’m gonna go on and say that this is all bullshit. Watch any video stream you want. You won’t see anything real or true. It’s a big show. I’m watching a movie. If I have to go over there myself to dis-prove it, I will. But, as it stands right now, I only see a reality-show and a bunch of cheese-eating-surrender-monkeys faking for some reason. What a fucking farce.

    ***disclaimer: If I’m wrong, show me, prove it. Videos on the internet mean nothing to me.

      • From the looks of it…it is really happening. Paris is a mess and people have risen up. We don’t know all but the twitter feed is full of videos not shown by msm. Also two yellowjackets pictured holding a Novorossia flag. Plain clothes thugs (like IDF) beating people. 70,000 police
